OBETRIGGER A CREATURE
ObE is a living digital organism whose erratic behavior is impossible to predict. The audience is invited to participate using sensors that cause the living organism to react. Operating like a theremin, each hand generates visuals and sound events leading the show into a live collective performance. The unique capabilities of the SATosphere yield an immersive audio-visual narrative in an impossible audio-visual space.
Floor projection possibilities gave us the idea to reshape the space, by placing prism sculpture made of foam board at the center of the environment, we aimed to represent the core of the creature and a way to connect with ObE. We designed a 3D model and exported it in a software called Pepakura Designer that unfolds it and gives you the piece you need to cut off in order to reconstruct it. Then in TouchDesigner we used CamSchnappr to adapt the mesh and project onto it.
For most of my projects, I make intensive use of the Lemur to control TouchDesigner and other devices (DMX, sound,..). The In-App Editor is very useful as it lets you design your templates on the fly without the need of a computer. Because of its wide choice of UI, (multiball, sequencer,..) and the objects physics, it becomes so simple to automate sequences and to use it as an animation tool.
